Hey Legs!!!

Wooooo hoooo! What an AMAZING reunion!!!! So great to see all of you...for those of you who missed it, check out our photos Peg's Legs on Shutterfly

One of the highlights of the evening was the presentation of the beautiful quilt you see here. It was created by Peg's Leg Maile Ostrem with help from friend Rebecca Eldredge and fellow Leg Connie Carr...of course it couldn't have been possible without Marita Salassa stealing all of Peggy's favorite dresses and t-shirts!

I know that all of you looking at this quilt will know how many memories are sewn into this creation! Each square brings up warm and fuzzy memories of our time with Peg...we spent so much time picking out her outfits for her and her clothes always expressed her whimsical sense of humor and her love of color! This is a gift we will truly treasure forever! Thank you thank you Thank you!

Hope all of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving...if you're up for walking off some of that turkey over the weekend, we'll be at the Blaisdell for the Islandwide Craft and Food Expo and the gallery will be open too! Black Friday weekend!

I think most of you got the email from Suzanne, but just in case - here's what it said:

We would like to extend a discount of 20% off any purchase at Peggy Chun Gallery to the Peg's Legs Ohana...and a FREE Peggy Chun Gallery reusable tote with purchase, now through December 25. The code word is "Peg's Legs"! :)

So make it a Peggy Chun Christmas!!! We definitely appreciate all your support as we try to survive and thrive in this economy.

Love to all of you and hope to see you soon...once a year is too little! Any ideas for events to get us all together before the next annual Peg's Legs reunion? Eric suggested movie nights at the gallery - we can project movies on the big white walls! Sounds fun! XOXO

Magda and the Damien Portrait on You Tube!

Here is a link to a cool video on youtube posted by an Argentian reporter in Rome who interviewed Peggy's artist assistant, Magdalena Hawajska, on the day of the presentation of the Damien portrait to the pope. Enjoy!
